'''Eithel Ivrin''' were springs that served as the source of the River [[Narog]].  They were located south [[Ered Wethrin]] on the northern borders of [[West Beleriand]].<ref>{{S|Map}}</ref>  The springs directly fed into the nearby [[Pools of Ivrin]] and together these features were sometimes collectively referred to as Ivrin.<ref name="Beleriand">{{S|Beleriand}}</ref>
+
 
+
==History==
+
The springs and pools were created by [[Ulmo]], who guarded them from defilement.<ref>{{S|Turin}}</ref>  Since the lands about were green and fair in {{FoA|20}}  King [[Fingolfin]] held the [[Mereth Aderthad]] ("Feast of Reuniting") at the Eithel Ivrin.<ref>{{S|Return}}</ref>
+
 
+
The springs marked the corner of the lands ruled by [[Turgon]] before he removed to [[Gondolin]], which extended westward from this point.<ref name="Beleriand"/>
+
 
+
After [[Túrin]] had mistakenly slain his friend [[Beleg]], [[Gwindor]] in {{FoA|490}}<ref>{{GA|267}}, p. 83</ref> brought Túrin to the pools of Ivrin.  There Túrin drank the water, which healed his madness and unloosened his tears.  Sorrowing for his friend, Túrin composed the ''[[Laer Cú Beleg]]'' before he and Gwindor followed the Narog south to [[Nargothrond]].<ref>{{CH|9}}, p. 157</ref>
+
 
+
[[Morgoth]] sent [[Glaurung]] the [[Dragons|Dragon]] forth in the year {{FoA|495|n}}.<ref>{{GA|275}}</ref>  When he came to the Eithel Ivrin he defiled their waters.<ref>{{CH|11}}, p. 176</ref>  Later, under the spell of Glaurung, Túrin came to the springs but found their waters but a frozen mire.<ref>{{CH|12}}, p. 182</ref>
